Removing painted wall paper


We want to repaint our living room but first of all, want to remove the existing wallpaper that has been painted over. Should we use a standard wallpaper remover or is there any tip we need to know?

Removing painted wall paper

The fact it was painted over shouldn't change it too much. It will just make a bit tougher. but some wall papers have almost a painted somewhat sealed Finnish to begin with.

With the painted surface it may be even more important to score it. Their are hand tool that you run over the surface to perforate the outer layer to allow the moisture top get threw to loosen it up.
